Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Adobe Goes Live with GoLive -- Adobe GoLive 4.0 for Macintosh - the eponymously renamed CyberStudio visual Web page editor and site management tool - ships this week; an announcement is expected Tuesday morning at Seybold Seminars in Boston. Adobe acquired GoLive, the makers of CyberStudio, in early 1999 and recently revealed the name change on their Web site. A Windows version is slated for the second quarter of 1999. The product's 4.0 release includes hundreds of bug fixes and improvements, though 3.2 may have been a more appropriate revision number. The new version carries the ability to manage URLs embedded in QuickTime movies and Flash animation files and is substantially faster. According to posts on the independent GoLive Talk list, the program is also much more stable. The new version also tweaks and improves support for JavaScript, DHTML, Cascading Style Sheets, and FTP.


Abode has published a confusing smorgasbord of upgrade pricing for U.S. and Canadian customers. Owners of any previous version of CyberStudio Pro or Personal Edition can choose an electronic download without printed manuals for $69; those owners or any registered owner of PageMill 3.0 for Mac or Windows can opt for a shrink-wrapped copy direct from Adobe for $99 plus shipping. Adobe also lists other options, including a bundle with Adobe ImageStyler and Adobe ImageReady. Adobe GoLive 4.0's list price is $299. [GF]
